With a history that spans over a century, the Michelin Guide is globally renowned for its revered star system. The Michelin Guide began in 1900 and at that time, it was a 400-page guidebook containing practical information for travellers. It was given to motorists free of charge with its aim being to facilitate their travels and develop mobility.
The Michelin Star rating took hold in the United States in 2005, and it began by concentrating solely on fine dining in New York City. Today, the Michelin Guide now rates over 30,000 establishments in over 30 territories across three continents, and more than 30 million Michelin Guides have been sold worldwide.
A Michelin Star is awarded to restaurants offering outstanding cooking. There are five universal criteria considered: the quality of the ingredients, the harmony of flavours, the mastery of techniques, the personality of the chef as expressed through their cuisine and, just as importantly, consistency both across the entire menu and over time.
